In the News Since it's nigh on impossible to produce accurate figures of operating system usage, we have to make do with figures that provide a rough estimate, at best. One such set of statistics are the figures from Net Applications, which tracks the 160 million monthly visitors to its hosted websites. The latest figures from January 2009 have been published, and they show that the rise of Mac OS X continues, as well as that of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Unsurprisingly, Windows 7 did quite well too.

And this is huge win for windows according to article


Go read it again, sonny. There is no mention in the article ANYWHERE that "Windows wins". All it says is that "Windows *7* wins", which is *perfectly* accurate.

Microsoft distributed windows 7 for free and gained few more windows 7 users than it was in closed beta? What kind of win is this? EPIC FAIL. Almost everyone better buy MAC OS X than download windows for free.

p.s. Here I look into numbers as they are true not time-money waster idiot job as they really is and make my conclusions from them. Not windows 7 wins because I wrote so in other place. I do not accept this.

And heavily seriously manipulative, If the title had said Windows Loses that would have been correct.
